      Pros

      Good Benefits and Most Coworkers are Pleasant

      Cons

      MICROMANAGED!!, Company Does Not Value Employees and Despises Employees with Disabilities, Tenure Means Nothing Despite the Ridiculously High Turnover, Low Morale, No Work-Life Balance, HR is useless, Employees are Expected to Worship the Company with Nothing in Return, Company is Reactive Instead of Proactive (they wait until a disaster happens to do anything about it because they don’t want to spend any unnecessary money to possibly prevent issues, and also in part because no one really knows what’s actually going on at any given time), There Are Too Many People Without Experience (that don’t know how things work) Trying to Run the Business (without any input from employees that actually do the jobs), The Company Claims to Care About Patients and Clients, But It’s Really Just About Numbers and Profits, Senior Management is Clueless and Don’t Care How Horribly Current and Former Employees are/were Treated, As Long as They Get to Put Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in Their Pockets Every Year, and Despite Being a Multi-Billion Dollar Company, Employees Get Cheated Out of Raises and Year-End Holiday Gifts (not even so much as a paper card), and We Can’t Get New, Clean, and/or Functional Supplies Needed to Perform Our Jobs

      Best place to work PERIOD!

      Pros

      Work life balance is top notch. Aces for work culture. Aces for SUPER diversity. At Express Scripts work is easy. Very easy to love what you do because leadership support is super amazing. As a matter of fact I can't express in words why I just love to go in to the office every day. Work from home is also very flexible.

      Cons

      I am so comfortable at this job I honestly can't think of any cons. FYI Express Scripts is not what it used to be a few years ago. This company, now a subsidiary of Cigna, is truly one of the best places to work in America and there are statistics to prove that.
